It did not take long when reading proverbs 28 to find a verse that spoke to me, I found inspiration straight away within verse 1.
“The wicked flee though no one pursues,
but the righteous are as bold as a lion.”
Forgive me if I am wrong but there is one word that rushes to my mind when reading this particular verse, Responsibility.
We have many responsibilities in life that we must stand up and be counted for but one that I have been very much reminded of this year is our responsibility to go and “Make disciples of all nations” (Matt 28:19). I’ll admit, I find preaching the gospel to those who do not know the word of Jesus or are not receptive of it a harrowing task, one which I can shy away from, however Proverbs encourages us to be as “Bold as a lion” and not to run away from our duties. I found this verse to be a great motivation to continue our evangelical mission and I hope it has been to you as well.
